Perman Wine Selections Events Calendar – 1/19/11

Hello,

After a brief hiatus, I am excited to announce today my full line-up of events for February and March!

Never been to a Perman Wine Selections tasting? Tastings at the store are a great way to learn about wine, and offer you the advantage of tasting before buying.

There are only 14 seats at the table in the event space, and you must sign up ahead of time to attend a tasting.

Putting together events takes quite a bit of time and work. Because my events are often small, each seat and every seat is important to its success. I’ve had to be a little tougher on last–minute event cancellations. A strict 48–hour cancellation policy is in effect for my tastings. If I can’t fill your spots with people on the waiting list, I have to charge you. I hope this isn’t a deterrent to signing up; it’s just a measure I have to put in place.

I am very excited about the line-up of tastings in the new year – this promises to be a lot of fun!
Cheers,
Craig

Red Burgundy for Beginners
Friday, February 18th

7:15 – 9:00 PM
$60 per person
14 spots available – to RSVP contact Craig via e-mail or phone – a strict 48-hour cancellation policy will be enforced

Questions about Red Burgundy abound from virtually everyone who drinks it. The only way to get a true feel for the subject is to taste and taste. Not easy to do considering it can be price prohibitive. That’s why beginners, this is a great tasting to come to, as we explore current vintages, talk through all the various names, and taste why many feel Red Burgundy is the greatest expression of Pinot Noir on earth.

France vs. The Rest of the World!
Friday, February 25th

7:15 – 9:00 PM
$50 per person
14 spots available – to RSVP contact Craig via e-mail or phone – a strict 48-hour cancellation policy will be enforced

Many wine professionals feel that all the greatest examples of certain grapes come from France. The best sparkling, well it comes from Champagne. The best Sauvignon Blanc is from Sancerre. The best Cabernet Sauvignon, that would be from a place like Pauillac in Bordeaux. I think you get what I’m throwing down. So let’s check it out – 4 flights, 4 French regions matched up against the same varietals from another part of the world. Who will win the battle? You need to come to find out!

What’s the deal with Sangiovese?
Thursday, March 3rd

7:15 – 9:00 PM
$55 per person
14 spots available – to RSVP contact Craig via e-mail or phone – a strict 48-hour cancellation policy will be enforced

Sangiovese – a noble grape varietal grown in famous Italian appellations like Chianti Classico and Brunello di Montalcino. I get many customers who ask why they like some but not others. The best way to find out is to taste! So I will gather up a bunch of Sangiovese from the various appellations and top producers and hopefully at the end we will finally know what the deal with Sangiovese is!

Retrospective Tasting: What happens when Red Burgundy gets old?
Friday, March 11th

7:15 – 9:15 PM
$90 per person
14 spots available – to RSVP contact Craig via e-mail or phone – a strict 48-hour cancellation policy will be enforced

Last year I introduced a series of retrospective tastings, where we gathered together and tried some amazing, well-cellared wines. It’s back this year, and we will repeat one of the favorite topics from last year – Red Burgundy! No real rhyme or reason, just a bunch of really good producers, village level, Premier Cru and Grand Cru, older vintages – well, I think you get the point. Don’t ask me what we are going to taste, if you come, it will be worth your while. All levels of experience welcome – I want this to be fun and educational.

If there is one thing I have proven time and time again at my store, it is that you don’t have to spend a ton to get a tasty and complex bottle of wine!

You can expect to taste some funky grape varietals you may have never had before as well as some well-known varietals that always offer good value.
